Govt announces plan to increase female participation at senior levels of civil service

A new plan is aiming to improve gender balance at each level in the civil service.

The Civil Service Renewal Plan will review supports and policies to ensure they are "impactful and measureable".

The proposals have been announced by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to increase female participation at senior levels in the civil service.

Recently, the civil service carried out a pilot programme across all Government departments with female Principal Officers who received executive coaching, mentoring and leadership development training.

Robert Watt, Secretary General at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and civil service spokesperson said: "The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform is committed to improving the gender balance at senior levels in the Civil Service.

"We will work with other Government Departments and agencies to deliver on that aim, building on a pilot programme that has just been undertaken."
